LEGO Built A Full-Scale, Drivable Bugatti Chiron Out Of Technic Pieces (Including Engine, With 5.3 HP And 12.4 MPH Top Speed)

August 30, 2018

To promote the sale of their much smaller 1:8 scale Bugatti Chiron LEGO Technic kit, these are a bunch of shots and a video of the full-scale version LEGO built out of Technic pieces (and metal framework and actual wheels). The predominately plastic car weighs in at 3,300 pounds and was built with over 1,000,000 pieces including 2,304 LEGO Power Function motors and 4,032 Technic gears. It's engine produces a whopping 5.3 horsepower and tops out at a blistering 12.4 miles/hour. SLOW DOWN. So did this cost more than an actual $3,000,000 Bugatti Chiron to produce? Almost certainly. Now, are you thinking what I'm thinking? "We need to see crash-test footage." Don't disappoint us, LEGO, we deserve this.

Keep going for a bunch more shots and the video.

Thanks to Kira K, who agrees they need to toss some full-scale LEGO crash test minifigs in there and give us what we want.

    The wheels/tires for a Chiron cost ball-park $20,000 (nobody has owned a Chiron long enough to need tires yet).

    For comparison, Veyron tires were $30,000 a set.

    That's a lot of crumple zone

    I'm so disappointed they didn't drive this into a lego wall though at that speed it would probably not be a very impressive crash - or maybe not. We'll never know because they didn't do it. :(

    This is seriously impressive. Getting 5+ Horsepower out of those little things is surprising.

  • Frédéric Purenne

    Why was the narration done as if intense action was happening? I'm assuming the helmet was to protect the driver from a cave-in of the Lego pieces and he also seems to give the thumbs up to someone showing his brand new laptop he hasn't turned on yet.

    Besides that, it's pretty cool.

    Best use of ironic, overly dramatic intensity in advertising I've seen in a long time. I want to buy a bunch of technic motors and servos more now than I did before I watched, so I guess it worked on me.

    Sometimes you just need a little emotional support to help you turn on your laptop, we've all been there.

    It looks... crumbly.
